UAE Free Zone companies (FZE & FZC)

If you are considering physically moving (part of) your business to the UAE, a Free Zone company is the obvious choice. You will have a local presence and do business in the heart of Dubai. You can rent an office space and obtain visas for you and your staff easily.

The main advantages of setting up in one of the free zones in the UAE are:

  • 100% foreign ownership is allowed
  • Renting of offices and flexi desks
  • Obtaining residence visas
  • No tax
  • Easy to hire the staff you need
  • Guarantee for 15-50 years against the future imposition of corporation tax
  • Import duty free (duty is 5% on most goods), if the goods are not supplied to the local market

The free zones each have their own free zone authority. These are profit making entities; their main source of income is often derived from renting office space, collecting license fees, and providing services to the companies operating in the free zone. All share the features outlined above but differ along the following lines:

  • Focus of the free zone; often attracting businesses from a particular sector although there is considerable flexibility;
  • Office rent; rents outside Dubai are significantly lower;
  • Minimum office space required;
  • Support facilities provided by the free zone;
  • Annual license fees;
  • Paperwork involved in forming the business;
  • Capital requirement;
  • Number of visas allocated per square meter office space.
